 INGREDIENTS

 

  • 1 lb chicken breasts (2 large) trimmed and halved lengthwise

  • 1/2 tsp Garlic salt (or to taste)

  • 1/8 tsp black pepper freshly ground

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil

  • 1 head romaine lettuce (8 cups chopped) rinsed and dried

  • 2 pears cored and sliced

  • 1 cup dried cranberries

  • 1 cup pecans lightly toasted on a dry skillet

  • 1/2 cup feta cheese (4 oz) crumbled

Balsamic Vinaigrette Ingredients

  • 3 Tbsp balsamic vinegar

  • 1 Tbsp Dijon mustard

  • 1 garlic clove pressed or finely minced

  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil (regular olive oil also works)

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 1/8 tsp black pepper

 

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Cut chicken breasts in half lengthwise so you have 4 thin cutlets. Season chicken cutlets on both sides with garlic salt and black pepper. Place a large skillet over medium heat with 1 Tbsp olive oil. Add chicken cutlets and sauté 3-4 minutes per side or until fully cooked through. Transfer to a cutting board and let chicken rest while preparing the salad then slice the chicken into strips.

2. Meanwhile, in a medium dry skillet, toast pecans over medium heat for 5 minutes, tossing frequently or until pecans are fragrant and lightly golden. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature.

3. In a large mixing bowl, combine chopped romaine, sliced pears, dried cranberries, toasted pecans, crumbled feta and cooked sliced chicken.

4. Combine dressing ingredients in a small mason jar. Cover with lid and shake vigorously to combine. If any separation occurs, shake again just before using. Drizzle balsamic vinaigrette over the salad, adding it to taste then toss to combine.

Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

Prep: 15 mins             Cook: 12 mins             Total: 27 mins             Servings: 18 -24 cookies

INGREDIENTS

 

1 stick butter, 1/2 cup

1 tablespoon milk, or almond milk

3/4 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup white sugar

1 egg

2 teaspoons vanilla

 

1 1/3 cups gluten-free all-purpose flour (I highly recommend this brand for best results - be sure to get one that contains xanthan gum), 7.5 ounces

1/4 cup almond flour, 1 ounce

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup chocolate chips


 

INSTRUCTIONS

1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the gluten-free flour, almond flour, baking soda and salt until evenly combined. Set aside.

2. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Once the butter is melted start to whisk constantly. First the butter will begin to foam, then after a couple of minutes it will begin to brown on the bottom of the saucepan. Turn off the heat as soon as the solids turn brown and the butter gives off a nutty aroma. Pour into a glass mixing bowl to prevent burning.

3. Add the milk, brown sugar and white sugar. Whisk to combine. Add the egg and vanilla and whisk until smooth and creamy.

4. Using a rubber spatula, mix in the dry ingredients until well combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.

5. Cover the bowl and let sit for 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 350F. Scoop the cookie dough (about 2 Tablespoons of dough per cookie) and place a few inches apart on the baking sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until golden and the center is set.

6. Let cool 5 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to continue cooling. Enjoy!
